Wipro deepens IBM relationship on cloud

Wipro is expanding its IBM Hybrid Cloud Practice and deepening its partnership with Biggish Blue.

The cunning plan is to help Wipro customers modernise their digital operations across hybrid cloud environments by using IBM Cloud Packs which are containerised software running on Red Hat OpenShift.

BoundaryLess Enterprise (BLE) is a hybrid cloud management platform that offers a comprehensive array of technologies in a single environment that enables customers to run their cloud-native applications from anywhere. BLE uses IBM’s open hybrid cloud capabilities to support containers, IaaS, and PaaS computing models that can help enterprises accelerate their transformation journey to the cloud.  ModernizR is a software-based thing built with IBM Cloud Pak for Applications, a key technology in Wipro’s cloud migration and operations portfolio. The solution is designed to help enterprises move their legacy applications to the cloud by using artificial intelligence to mine and analyse customer’s legacy applications and data.

Wipro president, BM Bhanumurthy, said: “Wipro empowers customers across industries to re-imagine their cloud journey with its business-first strategy and industrialised solutions approach [cough, Ed.]. We believe the future will be driven by hybrid cloud hence, the expansion of IBM Hybrid cloud practice is intrinsic to our strategy. It will strengthen our relationship with IBM and help accelerate our clients’ transformation journey across hybrid cloud environments.”

IBM senior vice president Bob Lord said: “The expansion of our relationship with Wipro reinforces our joint commitment to help clients accelerate their journey to cloud across industries, including highly regulated sectors such as financial services, energy and utilities, manufacturing and healthcare. Wipro’s industry knowledge, combined with IBM’s hybrid cloud and AI platform powered by Red Hat OpenShift, can help enterprises drive real business transformation by migrating and managing their critical workloads across an open hybrid cloud environment.”

Wipro recently announced a 5G edge services solution suite that integrates IBM Edge Application Manager and TRIRIGA to address a range of concerns related to deploying and managing distributed services on devices, private edges and telecom operator’s Multi-Access Edges globally.
